November 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

The Association of Fundraising Professionals of Bermuda recently partnered with the Bermuda National Trust to plant a tree at the Higgs Nature Reserve to honour the XL Catlin Foundation, saying “both XL and Catlin, and now the combined company, have a long history of philanthropy in Bermuda.”

A spokesperson said, “NPD celebrates the charitable work that everyone does to make a difference and impact their communities through donations of time, talent and financial contributions.

“The Association of Fundraising Professionals of Bermuda wants to recognize the many donors and volunteers in Bermuda for their generosity and commitment to our local community.

“Today we are especially pleased to have partnered with the Bermuda National Trust to plant a tree here at the Higgs Nature Reserve to honour the XL Catlin Foundation. Both XL and Catlin, and now the combined company, have a long history of philanthropy in Bermuda.

“Although the Foundation is probably most well-known for sponsoring the End-to-End Walk which gives out tens of thousands of dollars annually, it also supports education, the elderly, exploration and more.”

“The XL Catlin Scholarship is awarded each year to a local student and provides a four-year full scholarship and the XL Catlin’s Day of Giving sees employees throughout the work all take a day to work on a local project, each May, resulting in over 250,000 hours of volunteer time.

“In addition in the summer of 2017 they sponsored the volunteer programme at the 35th America’s Cup which was an enormous undertaking.”

AFP Bermuda Chapter President Jennifer Burland-Adams said, “I want to thank Mark Berry from the XL Catlin Foundation, and the leadership team at XL Catlin, for their commitment to making a difference in Bermuda as we celebrate National Philanthropy Day 2017.”

Mark Berry, Managing Director, XL Catlin Leadership Council, said, “On behalf of all my XL Catlin colleagues and the Board of the XL Foundation, XL Catlin’s Bermuda-based philanthropic unit, I would like to thank the Association Of Fund Raising Professionals for their kind recognition.”

“XL Catlin is committed to making a difference in Bermuda and other communities in which we operate. An example of this is our annual Global Day of Giving which unites colleagues in every office around the world in donating time and skills to the communities in which we live and work.

“The day focuses on specific skills we can share and the labour and energy we can offer. The projects vary widely, fuelled by the passions of our colleagues and the needs of our communities.

“Among other things, colleagues have helped to preserve historic sites, run educational activities for children, serve meals at homeless shelters, and paint and garden for local community centres.

“The XL Foundation carries out its commitment to the Bermuda community through its areas of strategic focus which are education, health & human services, social & community, sports & recreation, arts & culture and the environment. We consider this an important part of our corporate social responsibility.”
